It’s always a highlight of LAAF but this year’s Family Day festival finale is promising to be bigger, bolder and brighter than ever before.
Expect more acts, more activities – and even more fun – at the event in and around the beautiful Sefton Park Palm House.
The 2017 line-up includes Alsarah and the Nubatones, led by Sudanese-born, Brooklyn-based singer Alsarah, who has been dubbed ‘the new star of Nubian pop’. London Syrian Ensemble, debuting at LAAF this year, is a collective of some of Syria’s finest musicians based in the UK, both newly arrived and long-term residents. Hear the sounds of Syria through a diverse repertoire of classical and traditional music from the region.
See high-energy performances from a collective of Egypt’s best dance talent, bringing both traditional and modern street dance from Cairo to the Palm House. Festival-goers also won’t want to miss a surprise guest performance. Also Reham Al-Hakimi and the Al Awadhel Band will be back by popular demand.
Along with the programme of international music and dance acts there will be an Arabian souk, cultural cuisine, and activities for all the family, including storytelling, henna and children’s craft and art activities.
